——————————————————————————————-

2017 and before:

What you can do right now:

Write to the responsible Minister and other government decision makers to express your point of view.  To make it easy, we have created an online letter so you just need to click here, add your name, edit or add to the letter as you please and then hit “submit”.  The letter will be sent as an email to relevant Ministers, the UQ Senate and other stakeholders. You will get a copy as well.

Complete the UQ survey (see 4 below) and give the university your feedback and thoughts on the Master Plan.  The online survey has now closed, but the email address should still be being read 😉

Talk to your friends, your neighbours, any UQ Senators you know and your politicians. If you have connections to church groups, school P&Cs, wildlife, parks or landcare groups, gardening clubs, bike or public transport action associations or other communities in the inner western suburbs or West End, do raise the UQ growth Plan with them and encourage their members and committees to make their concerns heard. The UQ Master Plan is not an issue for St Lucia alone. This proposed level of expansion should be better known and of concern across the city and beyond.

So:

1) Write to the responsible Minister and other government decision makers to express your point of view.  To make it easy, we have created an online letter so you just need to click here, add your name, edit or add to the letter as you please and then hit “submit”.  The letter will be sent as an email to relevant Ministers, the UQ Senate and other stakeholders.

2) read the Master Plan to get a better idea of the scale and impacts involved.

3) Host one of the latest series of SLCA yellow A2 all-weather corflute signs on your property.

     

     

4) The UQ Survey is now closed for new submissions.

“Written submissions via email to masterplan@pf.uq.edu.au (please use Draft Master Plan Submission in the subject). Feedback received during this period will be considered during further development and finalisation of the Master Plan. Have your say by completing the feedback survey or making a written submission before 5pm on Friday 28 April 2017.”

5) Talk to local media with an existing interest:

Flyer delivery

We rely on volunteer “Street Captains” to deliver flyers to a small area.

It’s a very simple process: a small bundle of flyers will be dropped off to your house and you deliver to your designated zone whenever is convenient for you.

We have divided up the suburb into delivery areas as marked on the map below.  A few zones still need volunteers – please see the table under the map.

Please call James Mackay on 0435 77 77 99 to register your interest in helping deliver flyers where we still require volunteers.
